Yellow labs.

The fry are maybe a centimeter or so long. Been out of moms mouth and in the fry net for about a week. They were free swimming with no yolk when i stripped them. Eating well on Hikari First Bites. With this species, do I need to go ahead and get the 10g up and running to house them for a while, or will I be able to reintroduce into the tank with the adults soon enough to not bother with it?

Your going to need that 10 gallon. But anyway when you should add them is determined by the size of the fish you will be putting the fry with. I like to put fry in my main tank at 1 to 1.5in but then again most my fish stay small.

I'd figure six months in a grow-out tank and 1.5" is my preferred size as well.
